a most likely be president of united states. that is what we're focused on, >> i wanted to change focus a little bit and talk about the upcoming lame duck session. before you left to campaign, congress passed a continuing resolution that funds the government into next year. one of the purposes was so that tough decisions could be made on the so-called fiscal cliff during the lame duck. it seems we're hearing that congress is going to punt on the lame duck and of the fiscal clip issues and not tackle the upcoming sequestration. i have a two-part question. do you think that is looking more likely? how will lawmakers explain that one for months we have had this buildup that if we do not do something in december bad things will happen? >> it all depends on who wins the election. it mitt romney wins and if we get 50 votes in the senate, in a sense to wait until we have a president romney and to have a republican consultant and things rectoactively. you would get a better deal for the american people. there are now accountable to the voters. if we win, the strategy makes sense. if not,

no interest in being president of the united states. i am enjoying being a united states senator. they went to mccarthy. to my surprise he said, i just might do that. he came over onto the senate floor. he said your guys came over to see me. i think i just might do that. i did not expect that. i did not expect him to do as well as he did. i told that robert kennedy, do you realize that mccarthy will run for president? he has finished his term. that is what he says. bobby had been urged to run against johnson and had turned it down. he probably thought it was hopeless. when he realized jane was going to do it, he began to realize, i should get into this thing. we had two senators campaigning for the nomination in addition to johnson, it was at that point after bobby got into the race that johnson announced that he would not run for reelection. i kind of felt sorry for johnson. i detested the war in iraq, but i thought that johnson had done a great job on domestic issues. he got through two landmark civil rights proposals, the public accommodations act and the boting rights act of

the united states has stood on the right side of history. that kind of credibility is precisely why we have been able to show leadership on a wide range of issues. >> you can watch the entire final debate on foreign policy between president obama and mitt romney today at 12:10 eastern here on c-span. >> this is the downsizing of the charts. you are watching it live. one of 10,000 homes they are trying to get done in the next four years. these are houses that are never coming back. >> one-family every 20 minutes moving out. >> moving out of detroit. >> these houses are disappearing from the landscape. >> just recently, 164 firefighters were laid off as part of the downsizing, effort for mayor bing to get fire -- to get finances under control. detroit must have the highest cases of arson in the country. they were rehired. the money came from the department of homeland security. i cannot want to overstate. that is something you want to think about. the department of homeland security needed to step in to keep detroit as safe as it could be. it could be a lot safer. i have wondered maki

united states in 2010, look at all the new state houses that were taken over, the new governorships, the new senators. did we win every race? no, we won't win every race this time, but there was a wave election in 2010 and it was a tea party wave that came and we won an enormous amount of seats in state legislatures and got control of states that we hadn't have control of in a long time and just because we didn't win every race doesn't mean it was a big wave, so no i think the direction is still in favor of people are worried about the debt. they're worried primarily about the debt and that's what the tea party is worried about, and so i think -- i see the wave going on through 2012. i'll be very surprised if we don't pick up more seats in 2012. >> neil? >> senator, what is your guidance or what would be your advice to senate candidates and other candidates for office who come out of the tea party when it comes to talking about the sort of social issues, abortion and other issues that have sort of gotten some of the candidates in trouble this cycle? >> well, i think the points is that we
